JD Classics confirmed as Members’ Meeting sponsor
JD Classics has announced that it is set to be Official Classic Car Partner to the 76th Goodwood Members’ Meeting, on the 17th – 18th March. The classic car and historic motorsport preparation company will be campaigning five iconic racing cars during the weekend’s events.
Out on track, the JD Classics Competition Department will be looking to continue its previous season’s winning streak, with a total of 11 victories notched up across a calendar of international races in 2017.
The team’s Patrick Motorsport Rover SD1 is returning to the Members’ Meeting Gerry Marshall Trophy race, looking to follow-up its double victory at Goodwood last year. Elsewhere, the team’s Spa Six Hours-winning Ford GT40 will honour the late Dan Gurney in the most fitting way possible; a charge to the chequered flag in the Gurney Trophy against sports car prototypes of the early ‘60s.
Meanwhile, the team’s Costin Lister – taking part in the Salvadori Cup – will be back on-track for the first time in 2018, fresh from consecutive victories at every single Stirling Moss Trophy race of 2017. Meanwhile, a race-prepared Jaguar Mk2 will be tussling with Lotus Cortinas and Ford Anglias in the Sears Trophy. A Lister Knobbly, run by one of JD’s customers, will also be taking to the track throughout the weekend.
“The Goodwood Members’ Meeting is one of the most amazing historic motorsport events on the calendar,” enthused JD Classics founder Derek Hood. “With an excellent standard of racing and countless grids of rare historic motorsport legends we’re extremely proud to be the event’s Official Classic Car Partner. Our Competition Department is raring to get back out on track, and the whole team is looking forward to welcoming our guests into the JD Classics hospitality lounge across the weekend.”
